Finding a figure-friendly dress according to your body type can be tricky at times. But this fall, you are going to slip into a dress that is universally flattering – paneled dresses are on-trend and surely on your side! We love how the side paneling instantly creates a look that is slimmer. As NYMag calls it a thin dress, it really is the smart way to wear the color-block trend. Also, the style is extremely versatile as it can go from office to out with a simple switch of accessories.
Jason Wu’s paneled dress (left) is one of our absolute favorite looks from the Fall 2012 runways. Prabal Gurung and Victoria Beckham have also showcased their own fabulous two-tone frocks in recent collections.
We’ve found some similar styles, much friendlier on the wallet while work appropriate. Our first grabs are these Calvin Klein shift dress and The Limited colorblock sheath dress. The teal contrasts beautifully against the black in sleek silhouette. Check out the look for less version.
Any print lovers? How about in leopard and abstract print? A touch of leather adds edgy appeal to this modern red frock. And let’s not leave out the amazing steals – these ponte dresses in blue, pink or rose print only $49 each!
And with all these chic dress finds you’re sure to be the best-dressed corporate fashionista – just add a touch of your personal style. As September nears we are swooned by rich textures and colors like these exotic pumps and red wrap jacket will incorporate effortlessly into your wardrobe – in particular this houndstooth panel shift dress.
